Set 098 in service we are two away from having our 100th electric passenger train entering revenue traffic, so far sets 080, 082, 084, 088, 090, 091 & 093 have all been converted to work with the new third generation B sets
TransPerth release a new comprehensive video about safety around buses and trains for their YouTube, I can't remember the last time I rode in an A set that had transverse 2x2 seating, looks like it was recorded in 2003/2004.

By my calculation, if the 3 x 4 car A sets are retained, all other trains could be 6 cars with 56 B sets in service. We now have 55.
Assuming probably 2 are out of service continuously for compatibility conversions, we probably need 5 more B sets delivered to be able to start handing the A sets over to other lines.
They are only running 2 x 4 car A sets on the Joondalup/Mandurah lines, having reduced from 3 sets on 24 November (those services now run with a 6 car). Still running are 2 x 4 car and 6 x 3 car that require replacing i.e. 10 x 3 car B sets still need to be added to have 100% 6 car sets running.
